Leeds were thumped 5-1 by Manchester United on the opening weekend of the 2021-22 Premier League season and twice fell behind to Everton during an entertaining contest at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.
Marcelo Bielsa‘s side managed to recover from the one-goal deficit on both occasions, though, with Raphinha scoring the goal that ultimately secured a point for Leeds, who will be desperate to avoid the dreaded second-season syndrome in the Premier League after such an impressive 2020-21 campaign.
The Whites will travel to Burnley next weekend in their final Premier League match of the month, and the league will once again be the priority for the club this term, but it would be one of the shocks of the round if Bielsa’s team were unable to negotiate their way past Crewe here.
Leeds have only ever won this competition on one previous occasion, back in 1968, and they went out in the second round of the EFL Cup last season on penalties to Hull City.
The Whites last locked horns with Crewe during the 2008-09 League One season and recorded two victories, including a 5-2 success when the pair met at Elland Road in September 2008.

David Artell‘s side will view Saturday’s trip to Charlton Athletic as a much more important game than the EFL Cup contest with Leeds, but Tuesday’s fixture provides the opportunity to claim a big scalp in the competition.
Crewe have reached the third round of the League Cup on 10 previous occasions, most recently in 2008, but they will be the huge underdogs to progress against Leeds, despite the fact that the hosts are expected to make wholesale changes to their starting XI at Elland Road.
